If it is a new book that you think the library should own, you can suggest it via our Suggest a Purchase page (with as much or as little information as you know). There's no guarantee that we'll be able to buy it, but we do take your recommendations seriously.

You can also request an InterLibrary Loan, where we borrow the book from another library. It can take two to four weeks for the materials to come in. It is also possible that we will be unable to get the book. To submit a request, print the form and work with a Librarian to fill it out.

  1. How long does it take to find out if our request to purchase a new book was accepted and how do we find out?

  2. @D, the best way to find out if a title you suggest for purchase is acquired is to set up a saved search in your library account. You will then get an email if the title is added to our catalog. You can then place a hold on it. Instructions can be found here:
